Initial Applications for the 2021 Orchard Project Labs will be available shortly. The information below refers to the 2020 lab, and thus the application below is PURELY for informational purposes. The 2021 application will be different (and shorter).

The 2020 Orchard Project will run from May 28- July 7, 2020. 

If you have ANY problems with your application, please email us at info@orchardproject.com.

You can use the following application for our hallmark program:

  • Orchard Project Professional Labs (for individual artists, teams, or companies to work or a project or projects)

There are other programs that run concurrently with the the above, but their applications are on different pages:

  • The Orchard Project NYC Greenhouse (for creative artists looking for collborators and a multi-year continuum of support).
  • The Orchard Project Episodic/TV Lab
  • The Orchard Project Core Company (for younger, emerging artists and students)

Unlike other programs, our process and focus is not to focus on the projects themselves. What that means is that the Orchard Project team and other artists who we have supported in past years assess whether the applicants are likely to create amazing work, and whether we think they will uniquely benefit from our support and the supportive atmosphere that makes the Orchard Project so special. 

Please be sure to read the Orchard Project FAQ before applying. The FAQ includes very important details about the structure of the program and application process, including copies of key questions for you to work on offline if so desired.

Please note that the process for submitting an application has changed. We now ask you to start an application, which you can return to and edit at any time.
